I Can Draw: Playtime by Simon Abbott

I Can Draw: Playtime gives children the confidence to learn to draw their favourite playthings. Starting from a simple shape, each step adds a little extra until the picture is complete.

About the Author

Simon Abbott lives with his family in Suffolk, UK, and has been illustrating children's books, toys and games for over 10 years. His favourite subjects to draw are smiley snails and funky fish.

He also coaches his youngest son's school football team, though they are still waiting for a win!

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

Pippa, Jack, Liam & Matthew Wils

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
